Morning rounds: SMU out to stop Fils; Wasylyniak game-changer for G-Bears

  • No. 9 Saint Mary's knows about Sherbrooke tailback Pascal Fils, even if no one west of Quebec does. The Huskies and Vert et Or is in an intriguing interlocking matchup, to say the least. (Metro Canada)

  • Laval lineman Louis-David Gagne is on a mission. (Le Soleil)

  • It's probably too early to know the nature of Ottawa running back Jordan Wilson-Ross' injury, but there were initial (initial, mind you) worries of a "cracked collarbone." (Sun Media)

  • There is a rookie of the year award, but if there was a newcomer of the year award, Alberta's Mike Wasylyniuk would get some consideration. His 42-yard catch that set up the Golden Bears' first touchdown vs. Saskatchewan was a stomach-punch. (Sun Media)

  • Is the QUFL too strong for the AUS? One reporter thinks so. (Rue Frontenac)

  • Regina running back Graham Mosiondz has been to hell and back rehabbing a surgically repaired shoulder. The Rams also get LB Brandon Ganne (sprained back) back from injury. (Regina Leader-Post)

  • More praise for Saskatchewan Roughriders wideout Rob Bagg (Queen's). (Regina Leader-Post)

  • Windsor has given Sam Malian a clean bill of health for Saturday's game vs. Waterloo. (Windsor Star)
  • It is catch-as-catch-can with pre-season scores, but there's a few worth sharing from Friday:

    • Defending national champion UNB beat McGill 7-6.
    • Alberta, on Ian Barteaux's OT goal, beat Saskatchewan 3-2 at the Huskies' home tournament.
    • Apparently, talking up Windsor in Friday's roundup jinxed the Lancers, who lost 6-3 at home to Carleton (which played last weekend). Derek Wells had two goals for the Ravens, giving him five in three pre-season games.

  • Former Medicine Hat Tigers star Daine Todd is itching to make an impact for the aforementioned Varsity Reds. (Daily Gleaner)
  • Mark Wacyk shares some thoughts about the "flexible scholarship" notion:
    " properly implement a widespread scholarship program from which every program at every school can benefit, a cultural discontinuity is required that changes the approach at the leadership levels from one of relying solely on University funding and passive philanthropy to a pro-active market-driven approach that focuses on the needs of partners (alumni, students, business, community) and delivers value to that end. Or else the new rules will sound great in theory but in practice have little to no impact on keeping student/athletes at home in this 'competitive marketplace.' "
